How are RANGES different from SELECT-OPTIONS? They are the same, except SELECT-OPTIONS will provide an interface on the selection screen for the user to input data. Back to top How to convert a date to internal or external format? Use the functions modules CONVERT_DATE_TO_EXTERNAL or CONVERT_DATE_TO_INTERNAL to convert the date. When converting to external format, the date format from the user's user profile will be used. When converting to internal format, the result will be in YYYYMMDD format. Back to top How do I download data in my internal table in a CSV file? Use the Function Module SAP_CONVERT_TO_CSV_FORMAT to convert the internal table into Comma seperated format then download this internal table using the Function Module GUI_DOWNLOAD.

Back to top I am using a SELECT query on a database table. Since the number of records in the table is very large, the program dumps due to insufficient memory. How can I solve this? In this case you could use the PACKAGE SIZE addition in the SELECT query to process in limited amount of data, thus avoiding the memory overloads. Eg: SELECT *  FROM <table>  INTO TABLE itab  PACKAGE SIZE <n>.

IF sy­subrc EQ 0. *" Process the n records ENDIF. ENDSELECT. [Back to top]

How can I import and export my ABAP developments? SAPlink is an opensource community project that makes it easy to share ABAP developments between programmers. It provides the ability to easily distribute and package custom objects. Back to top Where are the long texts of a document stored and how to access the same?* The long texts of a document are stored in a encrypted format in the STXH and STXL tables, where STXH stores the header information of the long text like TDOBJECT, which indicates which text object the long text belongs to, TDID which indicates the Text ID and TDNAME which is the actual name of the long text. As these texts are stored in a encrypted format, the text cannot be read using a SELECT statement. You will have to use the function READ_TEXT. The easiest way of getting to know the parameter values is to go to a document, open the long text in a full screen mode. For example, when you wan to see the long text for a Purchase order, go to transaction ME23n. Assume, you want to see the parameters for the Header Text. In the first Tab Strip Control, click on the Texts tab and select the Header Text node on the left hand side, which will display the text on the right hand side. Now, double click on the text editor on the right hand side. This will open the text in the full screen mode. In the menu Go To --> Header, you should be able to see the values for all the three parameters we discussed above. We will have to do the same thing for whichever text parameters we want to see.

Back to top How do I create a long text for a document?* Please refer to the important parameters that are discussed in the previous question of reading texts. We will need the same parameters for saving the text as well. The function modules that you can use for this will be SAVE_TEXT followed by COMMIT_TEXT. The parameters play a very important roles as you might not see the saved text in the standard transaction if you give wrong parameter values.

Back to top How do I display / add the Terms and Conditions to the business document? I would suggest that you create separate SMART Form for the Terms and conditions and call that right after the PO main smart form. It gives the flexibility in calling the same smart form for other documents also, as generally these are the same Terms and Conditions for all the documents that a company uses. We can have the Terms and Conditions stored as long texts in SO10 (Standard Text, TDOBJECT TEXT and TDID - ST and TEXTNAME - Whatever name you want to give). This way if you want to change the text, its easy to change and you can transport the changes using program RSTXTRAN. We have a text element in the smart form, and the general attributes of the text change the type to "Include Text". This will change the screen and you should be able enter the parameter values of Object, ID and name. This will automatically print the entire long text on the smart form, we just need to make sure that this is a part of the main window of the smart form as the text might run into multiple pages.

How to calculate last date of the month? Mostly this problem arises since the months have variable end date and we need to know at runtime, whether last date is 31 or 30 or in case of Feb 28 or29!!
